Actually I found the way to get fddi cards to be recognized under 
Solaris 9. You have to modify the /etc/system file, and add the 
following line:

set sunddi_netifname_constraints=0

But it sounds like the problem Josh is having is finding the drivers 
for his earlier fddi cards. Sol 8 & 9 comes with the drivers for the 
later cards already installed, if the cards are the earlier ones he'll 
have to find the drivers.
